Damien John Nott Australian Aerial Phenomena Investigations
A.A.P.I. was founded in 2012 by lead investigator, Damien John Nott. Spurred by his vision to create a central and pivotal group of senior investigators that cover the entire Australian continent, Damien has brought together a team of extraordinary people, most of whom are direct experiencers of the UFO phenomenon. Where appropriate, we use the term Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) as it encapsulates a more accurate definition of what is sometimes described as lights, rather than solid objects. With our combined group knowledge, wealth of invaluable experience and ongoing research, our collective aim is to provide evidence of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena in the skies over Australia.

Mariana Flynn President UFO Research NSW (incl. Exopolitics Sydney)
Mariana's interest in UFOs started way back as a teenager with an interest in consciousness and the soul journey and her quest to find out who she is (because she certainly did not feel Earth was her permanent home). This led to a study in meditation and Eastern Mysticism in her twenties and a belief in reincarnation and ultimately to a deep inner yearning to understand where we come from, who we are in the scheme of things and what the purpose of our life is. So it was inevitable that she would pursue an interest in extraterrestrials eventually. Alex Collier was one of her early introductions to the UFO/ET phenomenon. About 8 years ago she joined UFO Research NSW and became its president almost 5 years ago.
Sheryl Gottschall President of UFO Research Queensland
Sheryl has always had an interest in things out of the ordinary and from the mid 1970s she started exploring the field of near death experiences which deepened over the next decade. Then in 1988, she became a member of UFO Research Queensland and immediately joined the committee. Three years later she was elected President and held that position for 5 years before stepping down due to ill health. She was re-elected as President in 2004 and continues to hold that position today. Sheryl has had a near death experience, UFO sightings and a close encounter among many other paranormal experiences. In 2012 she established the Afterlife Discussions group which explores death & dying experiences and the afterlife. She now studies shamanism and feels it is subjects like this that will give us more clues about the UFO phenomenon. Sheryl is also a Reiki teacher, colour therapist, and teaches classes in mindfulness meditation, art therapy and shamanic journeying among others. Her website is www.bodylight.com.au.
James G. Davidson Ancient Histories + Mythology Researcher
Born in a small tenement building in Aberdeen, Scotland on the 28th MAY 1948 I did my schooling at Smithfield Primary then Northfield Secondary schools until the age of fifteen. It was now time to take on the world thus my apprenticeship as a carpenter-joiner. During this time I also participated in my other ‘great love’ – music – spending all my spare time playing with various Scottish Country Dance Bands in and around the Aberdeen area.
In 1969, at the age of twenty I emigrated to South Africa, working as a carpenter on the platinum mines. For the next 35 years I became a fully licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer as well as a private pilot, establishing two aviation companies on the way.
At the age of 57 I decided to follow my ‘third great love’ writing books on Ancient Civilisations and my own personal encounters with UFO’s and Alien Civilisations.
Africa is a continent of mystery and intrigue simply because no-one has taken the time to decipher the hieroglyphics of Southern Africa – Rock Art.
In their artwork the chroniclers of old have portrayed the entire history of Ancient Afrika.
They documented the half-man half-animal Lemurian civilisation, they observed the rise of the mighty Afro-Atlantean nation, they even recorded evidence of horrific plagues, of devastating wars and even witnessed Alien visitations – and they left it all for us to see.
Since a very young age strange things have been happening in my life.
When I was 7 I would hear the ‘tommy knockers’ in the middle of the night, at the age of 17 I had a visit from the ‘men in black’ which was followed shortly by a terrifying abduction late at night on a lonely country road – this put me on the road to enlightenment – there had to be an answer.
After many years of studying religions, mysticism, UFO’s and ancient civilisations I was told the answer in a visitation in 1982
Barry witnessed his first UFO at age 11. After a close UFO encounter in 1970 he became involved in UFO research in Australia. From 1996 to 1999, while living in Grafton, NSW, Australia, Barry witnessed numerous 'waves' and 'flaps' during day and night observations, many had been captured on video.
In 1997, during a period of high UFO activity, his interest developed into full research and video analysis. Barry observed many different types of UFOs and developed his techniques, resulting in some very close UFO encounters.
Barry has been a guest speaker at UFO conferences and seminars hosted by UFO Research (NSW) Incorporated, Australia. A lifetime of UFO experiences has been published in his book, UFO DOWN-UNDER: How to see UFOs and photograph them.
